There’s nothing better than colorful, vibrant patterns for summer. Summer is a time for fun fashion and experimenting with various colors, prints, shapes and patterns. Resort wear and vacation fashion are mixed in with everyday looks so beachy style is welcome. Just close your eyes, and envision yourself tanning on a beach with a fruity drink in your hand. Let those positive vibes guide your outfit creation.

The green leaves printed on this Fashionista’s shorts has us dreaming of a distant tropical paradise. She wears these high-waisted shorts with such style, paired with the white ruched tank top. She accessorized with some dainty silver bracelets and finished the look with sporty blue sneakers. Even her casual, flowy hairstyle complements her ensemble. She could certainly wear this look to the beach and boardwalk, but it’s also appropriate for her everyday summer activities. Overall she looks comfortable, confident and stylish.

Try getting this island gal vibe with a similar pair of patterned shorts. If you gravitate towards a more dramatic, flowy look, try a long, bold maxi dress, or go all out with a rad matching set. The important thing is that you find a cool print or pattern that complements you and makes you feel tropical-chic.
